An Ethiopian Post-Apocalyptic Science Fiction Film? YES! Probably the strangest and yet most delightful film ever to grace NFR’s screen!
CRUMBS is set against the background of spectacular post-apocalyptic Ethiopian landscapes, where the film finds a strange-looking scrap collector, Gagano (played by the charismatic Daniel Tadesse).
Alternately gripped by daydreams and constant fears, the diminutive Gagano has had enough of collecting the priceless crumbs of decayed civilization, including the most valuable: merchandise from Michael Jackson and Michael Jordan.
When a spaceship that has been hovering high in the sky for years starts showing signs of activity, Gagano has to overcome his fears – as well as a witch, Santa Claus and second-generation Nazis — to discover things aren’t quite the way he thought.
“Short proves sweet in Spanish writer-director Miguel Llanso‘s bizarro mid-lengther Crumbs, an outlandish and imaginative sci-fi miniature-employing film from Ethiopia whose $225,000 budget probably matches Jupiter Ascending‘s prosthetic-ear bill. Making potent use of spectacularly extraterrestrial locations in the country’s sunbaked far north around the ghost town of Dallol, the film takes an exotic and sometimes surreal approach to what’s essentially a simple, touching love story.”
